About the Fishing Communities Coalition

The Fishing Communities Coalition (FCC) is an association of community-based, small-boat commercial fishing groups, representing more than 1,000 independent fishermen and business owners from Maine to the Gulf Coast to Alaska who share a commitment to the sustainable management of America’s fishery resources. Together, we work to support thriving commercial fisheries in each of our local communities, while acting as strong stewards of the marine environments off our shores.  We believe the future of commercial fishing depends on fishing smarter, not harder
